Inscrutable Squares

When your games design mojo is at it's lowest ebb, and you can't think of anything particular to do on the development, even while despairing at how far from complete the game still is, I find it useful to draw small, square-shaped diagrams - whether of non-linear level progression pathways, super efficient rendering strategies or simply of how I plan to eat at lunchtime.

The point is to make them as intriguing and cryptic as possible. By creating such a square and filling it with inscrutable squiggles, you will soon emerge with a fresh sense of purpose and direction, ready to forge ahead with a production that will undoubtedly exceed the very boundaries of gaming avant garde.
